    EMAIL TO FACT CHECKING SANTA RE. FERRIS BUELLERHi Adam.
    I'm sure someone has told you this, but Cameron is actually saying:
    "You can't hit it. You can't hit it. You can't hit it. Swing, batter!" Not "Kennedy".
    I know, I was amazed as well.
    Paul Carr (aged 48).
    FC Santa replies: Ho ho! Thanks Paul. In fact I think he's saying "He can't hit, he can't hit, he can't hit!" Happy new year!

Multidimensional, Thought-Provoking, Fun!

Late to the party but happy I made it. I was introduced to Adam Buxton a few years ago when I finally watched Travel Man... then finally started getting into his podcast! The only way for me to be succinct here is to say I love it!

OllyHotPants ,

The Best

The only podcast I actually re-listen to certain episodes….David Sedaris and his crap sack, and Joe and Louie and the Penguin Book Club. Thank you for all the chuckles and insights while I’m walking my dog, Ollie.
